The Informed Woman’s Health Guide to Understanding & Controlling Menopause, PMS, Infertility & Osteoporosis
Progesterone & Your Health
In order to accurately evaluate the effects of the hormones estrogen and natural progesterone, on Menopause, PMS, Fertility, and Osteoporosis, it is necessary to identify the sources of these two primary female hormones. Distinguishing safe and natural hormones from those that are foreign and carcinogenic will allow women to make informed choices.
This information will help them to avoid the unwanted effects of low or no progesterone (Estrogen Dominance) and the subsequent unpleasant symptoms associated with Menopause & PMS. Other major disorders, including breast cancer, stroke, osteoporosis & heart disease have also been shown to be the result of an imbalance of hormones.
Your Monthly Cycle
(day 1 is the first day of your period)
Under the normal, healthy circumstances of a woman’s monthly cycle, estrogens should be the dominant hormones for the first two weeks and is balanced by natural progesterone, which should be the dominant hormone for the latter two weeks.
After a woman has entered menopause (age 50-51), whether it is due to age or surgery (hysterectomy), female hormone production drops to approximately 40% to 60% of the pre-menopausal levels. While the need for a proper balance of estrogen and progesterone are important to all adult women, it is more critical at this time. In order to preserve optimal balance, informed women have chosen a properly formulated natural progesterone cream. Imbalances occur, however, when foreign estrogens and synthetic hormones are introduced into the body that interfere with natural hormone production and normal thyroid function, and when natural progesterone production is consequently suppressed by these environmental antagonists.
